    In another thread people complaining how weak the Nadal backhand is (I'm not sure) and how Djokovic can exploit this easily.

    Has Nadal ever tried to hit a right handed forehand? Since he is a naturally right handed - would it be that hard to hit a forehand on his right hand side? Especially on balls that are outside his double handed backhand.

    I think toni said the only reason nadal hits lefty is bc it feels natural. So maybe a right one handed FH doesnt feel right.

    Having watched Nadal every single minute of his life , i can confirm that he tried hitting right handed forehand many times. Didnt work out.
